More Faces

Using the technique outlined in my earlier post, I did a few more faces. I have been calling these “cheat” paintings because the paint goes directly over a photograph. But I am learning that it takes more to make the painting actually come to life, a real attention to detail; and I love studying the face to find ways to highlight and accentuate the most interesting features. I love both of these faces so much! I hope you like them too. And thanks to Matt for being a “model” for me. It was crazy fun to paint your face!

To make these I played with Neocolor water soluble crayons, water soluble pencils, and Sakura Gelly pens, washi tape.

  1. I used to do something similar; make a collage of pictures and then apply paint to them to produce a unique image in which all the proportions and basic work had already been done for me. I like your work, it would be good to branch out from pure portraiture. Cheers, keep it up! Tony

  2. Very creative and beautiful work.

    BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!
